Stephen Hough Performs Works of Debussy, Liszt, and More, at 92Y

Thursday March 30, 2023, 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

$25.00

“Elevation and luminosity, the art of sonority, overwhelming virtuosity … the fingers of Stephen Hough are pure gold”

Le Monde

A pianist of awesome technique, artistic refinement, and a keen musical imagination, Sir Stephen Hough joins us. The MacArthur “Genius” Grant recipient and one of The Economist’s “Twenty Living Polymaths” brings a characteristically dazzling program: Mompou’s “magic songs” of 1919, ecstatic Scriabin, and glistening Debussy for the program’s first half. The New York premiere of Hough’s own Sonatina Nostalgica leads to the program’s final works: Liszt’s Three Petrarch Sonnets and the “Dante” Sonata, each putting Hough’s technical and interpretive gifts on full display. A feast for piano music lovers.

Concert available for viewing online for 72 hours from time of broadcast.
